AWESOME, Keith!!!!!!! Damned cool!!!!!
Way to go Keith....
Oh man -that is pretty amazing - THANKS KEITH!!!!!
i gotta have me one of those shirts ! plus im gonna be driving up the biding on his artwork thats auctioned off , i want that piece !
yeash - get the big money bags out ....That piece that Keith did that is gonna be auctioned off typically sells at art gallerys for about $2500
I suspect the bidding will wind up being under $1K
Keith-great shirt. Will have to make sure to get one early. As far as the auction piece goes. I hope it brings a lot as well as the other pieces there. Can't wait! One month!!
I'm hoping I can make it out again this year. I had a blast last year ! I'm kinda in the same pickle as last year . I'm hoping to find someone to ride out with and help pay for gas. I would love to cruise out in a hot rod and shoot picks on the way.
Have you talked to the Relix CC?
They are based either in Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo area- I cant remember which - I know some of those guys are heading over...........
And some Road Devils Detroit are coming over as well........
email me at email@example.com and I will get your their contact info
Mr Wells, Can you post a pic of the art Mr. Weesner did?
I remember seeing it but can't remember where.
The world famous "Swiss Car Club" (all 3 members) will be in attendance.
as some may know....and for those that dont....
Vintage Torque Fest does NOT give out trophies.....
we are NOT opposed to them - just dont want to fall into the political trap of all the bull that goes into giving out trophies.
If a CAR CLUB presents a car with what THEY feel is the best car at the show......then everyone will understand that it is that particular group that decided on the best car in THEIR OPINION.
This being said - we hope that perhaps the Rat Bastards, Los Punk Rods, Road Devils Detroit, Hoodlums, Voodoo Kings, Hot Heads, Suedes, and yes - even the world famous Swiss Car Club, Bombers, Oliver Group, etc will throw something together and present to the fellow hot rodders. This presentation will be at 4pm or 430pm in the Vendor Building #1

Typically galleries will sell Keith's original works from $800 to $3500. Price is usually determined by

Keith has NEVER painted this many cars on a single painting.....this should help push the price on this

...got a Tin Butcher's club pick trophy ready to go....
wow - Sam - you ALREADY have the Tin Butchers award ready to go? You guys ARE prepared!!!
OK - heads up to the HAMB members - we are already at 240 pre registrations for Vintage Torque Fest......
what does that mean to you?
well - if you intend on coming to the drive in on Saturday night - odds are it will be sold out for PRE REG ONLY
so dont get there and complain about not getting to go........
We will be announcing this on facebook as well.
Last year we had about 120 TOTAL pre reg.
Most of them arrived in the 2 weeks prior to the show.........
we are double what the pre reg was last year! So this could translate into double the cars that came out last year - if this happens....we could get a LOT of cars.
I suspect we will get at least 600....
but the potential to get up to 800 is there.
Thanks and if you have questions - dont hesitate to ask.
...what did I tell ya John? ...one thing you got goin for ya is that people are ready to get out and do somethin, it's been a long winter.
We can't wait to be there.
We are looking forward to all the action and the movies at the drive-in.
put me down for 2hrs volunteer
Well, looks like the Rat Bastards will be bringing a trophy as well.
hey - hey!!! Rat Bastards are really stepping up - love it - so.....any other clubs gonna do an award for what you think is the best of the show?
We dont care about giving all the trophies to one guy - cause if that one ride is the best in the house............then it should go home with extra iron!
I know the Voodoo Kings are gonna present and I think the Half Fast guys will be doing something......how about Road Devils? I know there will be some in the house - they gonna bring anything to present?
The SWISS would be honored to present an award. Its already made and ready to go!!!
22 days until the show!
All we can do now is hope for good weather!!!!!!
Just a few more adjustments left to do on the truck,see you guys there!
The Coronado Car Club trophy is finished.
No need to worry about that! The weather will be good!!!!!!!!! I hope!!!!
it sucked last year so we deserve a break and the sun will be shining right ? still had a damn good time last year and plan to do the same again
weather is gonna be terrible - show up anyway
Just wanted to let everyone on the HAMB know that the guaranteed spots at the drive in are now "sold out".
I know that we will have about 20-30 extra spots that night of the show....but I dont want to overbook the drive in.
So a BIG thank you to all the pre registration people - we certainly appreciate it.
Yes we will still be giving out the DVD to anyone that pre registers - it will be available in late June or early July.
We will also be giving special treatment for the Pre Registered people on Saturday Morning - you can get in up to 1 hour early!
if you are a Pre Registered car - you will be able to get into the show at 8am
the rest of the cars get in at 9 am and the public gets in at 9am as well.
